Item description for No Eye Can See (Kinship and Courage) by Jane Kirkpatrick...
Overview Second in a series, this frontier adventure tale chronicles the harrowing journey of eleven women across the American West and their efforts to settle in California. Original.
"Jane Kirkpatrick has, almost literally, created her own genre of fiction. Her books enfold...whisper, 'Let me tell you about a woman who...' They find a secret place in each of us and bring it gently to the surface." "-Salem Statesman Journal " Suzanne felt the tears press at her eyes as the dream-state drifted away-taking with it the sight of the man she loved. Awake, she blinked back the tears. This was her life now. The sounds of the women and oxen, those were real. And the darkness-her darkness. She lay inside it, resigned. She was not a wife reaching out for her husband but a widow, a blind widow, wistful and full of desire. FACING CHALLENGES AND LOSS, A COMMUNITY OF EXTRAORDINARY WOMEN FIGHT TO OVERCOME THE PAIN OF THE PAST - AND EMBRACE THE FUTURE. When blind and widowed Suzanne Cullver reaches California with a group of women who have survived tragedy on the Oregon Trail, she sets her mind on doing for herself all that must be done. Though she cannot see, she rejects offers of assistance, unwittingly risking her children's safety - and her own. Her companions blindly falter as well, held hostage by their own pasts. As Suzanne attempts to control her life in Shasta City, Ruth defends against past errors, failing to see how she limits love. Meanwhile, Mazy's vision seems to be permanently clouded by her late husband' s betrayal. But when a young stagedriver risks all for a Wintu Indian, his life becomes entangled with the turnaround women - and together they are changed forever as they discover that "No Eye Can See" all the good God has in store for those who love Him.

Called Barcelona Calling, it's the story of a writer who loses her way as she seeks fulfillment thinking she'll find it with fame. It's a laugh out loud book according to reviewers.

Reviews - What do customers think about No Eye Can See (Kinship and Courage)?
Difficult to immerse into Nov 4, 2007
I found this book at the library and was excited because Jane Kirkpatrick was a new Christian author for me. However, the book was a letdown. I found it difficult to keep track of all the characters. I was very confused about Zilah and her crazed demise at the beginning. I've picked up a middle book of a series before and didn't have a problem reading it. However, I have no interest in reading the other books in the series. Just not as good to me as a Liz Curtiz Higgs or Francine Rivers.
A Second Incredible Story... Feb 23, 2007
Jane Kirkland brings you further into this tale of these widowed women. They make new lives for themselves, and their stories are all unique, but yet melded into a family. This book won't disappoint you, and you will be sure to want to read the next book in the series.
Jane Kirkland has won my eyes over with her books--they all are rich in trueisms and vivid pictures that she paints as she takes you on her journey. Living the the Pacific Northwest--I can assure you, it's pretty much as she says! Thanks Jane!
Great Author Feb 12, 2007
Jane Kirkpatrick is a little known author with great stories. The book does not make much sense if you have not read tghe first of this series, "All together in one place." Very worth reading. relaxing, entertaining, and very well written. She makes you want to get the next in the series just to see what happens next.
No Eye Can See Aug 25, 2004
It has been years since I have found a book this enjoyable to read. I am so glad this book is one in a series. There is a lot wisdom in the characters dialog. I am a new fan of Jane Kirkpatrick's. -
Great series to read Jul 30, 2003
This was a fantastic series to read. I couldn't put it down, you actually feel like you know all the women in the series. You hope that Tipton will survive her loses, and you hope for good things for Mazy and Ruth. I can't wait to read more by Ms Kirkpatrick. She makes you feel like you are there with them.
